Super cute -- love how interactive it is. Also love how fun it is to say ploof. Very good for talking about being socially anxious and how to interact softly.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
We love this book and this series. Narwhal and Jelly are fun characters and a great series. This is the first two books in the series combined into one with a fun superhero name generator and stuff. It's full of all sorts of quirky fun, humor, puns and adventure with a focus on friendship and everything. My kids love these books and love the illustrations and artwork. It's a quality, entertaining and educational, uplifting series. Thanks so much to LibraryThing and Tundra Books for letting us read and review this wonderful book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.… (more)

First sentence: This is Ploof. Ploof is feeling lonely. Can you say hello?

Premise/plot: Ploof is a cloud that your little one can "interact" with as you read the book aloud. How is it interactive? Think Little Einsteins, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Blue's Clues, Team Umizoomi, etc. For example, "What's Ploof pretending to be now? Ah, I see! Good one! Wow! So many shapes! Can you guess them all? Hmmm... Ploof is running out of steam. Let's help puff Ploof back up. Can you blow softly on Ploof?"

My thoughts: I like this gentle read. I love the pastel colors. I like the friendly narrative. Ploof is adorably drawn. Will this one prove an engaging again-again read? I think it has potential for some little ones at least.

I do think this one is for preschoolers (or even younger). I greatly enjoyed it. I'm torn between four stars and five stars.
